Mom was a principal in the DOENYC, and then retired to become a principal in a Catholic School on Staten Island. Dad has been a principal at an all-girls Catholic HS for nearly 35 years, so although high school was a blast for me (my dad arranged all the European trips with his schools, thanks pop!) I basically had little choice when it came to a career...it was in the genes I suppose. BTW, yes, my childhood (aside from the girls) sucked, because I wasn't the best student. They were the children of working class Brooklynites (both grandfather were truck drivers, one of whom supplemented his income with OC) and it was my grandparents who raised me as my folks were ALWAYS working. They also split and got back together twice, once when I was 15, the next I was 19. They are now together and much happier than I ever remember them.

Living? My mother is six feet under.*

My father is "retired" ... but he and I invest jointly.

* I'll never forget the day ... "Now this coffin will protect your dear mother for twoooo hundred years." My nephew responded, "Oh no, she won't need it for that long. She liked to shop, she'll have a new one way before then."

My father has been dead for decades and, as far as I can determine, my mother's sole occupation was smoking, eating, and living off the pension she gets from my dead father. She was quite a role model.

My father was in the air force and my mother was a nurse. Both are now happily retired and running a B&B on Lake Ontario. During the off season, they vacation (currently in the D.R., but they're going to France in the Spring - not that I envy them or anything).
